    “I bought my Cuisinart back in 1983. This is the very first recipe I made in it, and have made it many times since.”

    Ingredients

  • 1/4 cuptoasted pecans
  • 1/2 lbcream cheese, cut into 1-inch cubes
  • 2tablespoonsblue cheese
  • Directions

  • Place nuts in food processor and process until finely chopped; it takes about 10 seconds.
  • Add both cheeses.
  • Process until very smooth; again, it should only take about 10 seconds.
  • Pack into a bowl and refrigerate until serving; this is best if allowed to chill for a few hours.
  • A dribble of brandy or port added when you add the cheeses doesn’t hurt.

  • “This is the first recipe I made in my food processor too.YUM, delicious.I chose this because it looked so easy (and it was) all these ingredients together are fabulous. We ate this with triscuits and gobbled it all up last night while watching T.V. THANKS, this is a keeper.”

  • “Lennie, this was DELICIOUS!!I love all 3 ingredients, so how could it not be?!Great blue cheese flavor that was not overpowering, but not too subtle.I will absolutely make this again.Thanks for giving me a real ‘keeper’ of a recipe!”

  • “Made this over Thanksgiving weekend for our visiting family who love pecans and blue cheese (I added a bit more of each than the recipe called for).It was easy and delicious.I’ll be doing this one again.Thanks! “

  • “This was my last hope for an appetizer to bring to a party as my efforts towards another recipe failed miserably, and I had to come up with something fast. This was so amazing, it whipped up quickly, effortlessly, and was a real hit. It is so good that it’s addictive. I plan to make it again, but I’m scared that I’ll eat it all. This is actually better than chocolate, if that’s possible. Thanks Lennie for yet another great recipe. “

  • “Everything was just right.A real keeper.Debbie Dowell”

  • “This is a very good spread.I have served it with assorted crackers and also used it as a filler in a pinwheel type of appy.I rolled out canned crescent rolls into a flat rectangle.I topped it with this spread and rolled up like a jellyroll.After refrigerating for a bit, I sliced into pinwheels which I topped with a pecan half and baked.They were excellent.Several people asked for the recipe.:)”

  • “Yummy!This recipe was GREAT!And SO easy!I lightened it by using 1/3 less fat cream cheese and added about 2 tbs of sweetened cranberries – just chopped them up a bit with the nuts- it spruced it up a bit more for a holiday gathering I attended!I will make this again!”

  • “Delicious! Very fast and simple to make. Everyone loved it!”

  • “I made this a long long time ago but neglected to review it.I made it again for a small dinner party.I had forgotten how easy it was to make and I was “floored” when the most picky, fussy and most difficult person to cook for just raved about it.It was good too!!I used a very good blue cheese and that might be what did it.In any event Lennie, this was terrific and I was most pleased to get my own review of this from a very picky eater.Thanks for the post Lennie”

  • “This is really good!I used full-fat cream cheese and gorgonzola.DH says I can never make the dip again because he can’t stop eating it. :)We took it to a potluck and it was the dish that went the fastest.Thanks for posting such an easy spread!”

  • “Easy and taste great, I did use about 1 tablespoon of Brandy and it added a nice extra something.I’ll be using this as a standby for unexpected company as it’s pretty much stuff I always have on hand.”

  • “Very easy and tastes great.I cannot wait to make it again.I served with slices of toasted baguette.No one would guess there are only 3 ingredients–and I may not tell them either!”

  • “Super easy to make and very tasty. Make sure to allow time for the flavors to blend, it does make a difference. I made some canapés with it on wheat crackers. I have a feeling I would like it even more on a herb and/or garlic cracker. Thanks for sharing!”

  • “Loving bleu cheese the way I do, I HAD to make this. It was very yummy!Thanks Lennie for sharing!”

  • “We just loved this spread!It was so easy to put together in the food processor! The flavor of the pecans with the blue cheese and cream cheese was delightful! I served this spread on garlic parmesan oval Italian toast which proved to be the perfect choice. Once again, Lennie, your recipes are delicious!I selected this recipe for your cook-a-thon, Lennie.I hope you are feeling better very soon. Remember to take good care of yourself.We love you! Bev”

  • “Sorry, I thought that this one was just ok. It tasted mostly of cream cheese here. If I make it again, I’ll add more blue cheese, or use a stronger tasting blue cheese.”

  • “I got many compliments on it.”
